Fanduel Announces 2016 World Fantasy Baseball Championship

FanDuel has announced the date for the 2016 World Fantasy Baseball Championship: August 20th, 2016. So far there are few details beyond the date, but once they release the full details we’ll be sure to post an update.

Last year’s WFBC, the largest MLB contest on FanDuel, took place live in Las Vegas and offered up a $4 million prizepool. We would expect the 2016 prizepool to at least match and possibly surpass the previous record total.

DraftKings NFL Week 1: $10 Million NFL Millionaire Maker

DraftKings is out breaking records again – this time announcing that their Week 1 NFL contest will be the biggest of all time.

The tournament will be the first in Daily Fantasy history to guarantee $10 Million, with $2 Million going to the winner. Second place would also become a millionaire earning themselves $1 Million. The best part of this record breaking tourney is that it won’t cost as much as to enter as you might think. Just $20 will get you a shot at that $2 Million 1st place. That should allow many players to submit multiple entries and really up their chances of scoring one of the bigger prizes.

In addition to the top offering, DK is also offering a $3 Week 1 tournament with $1 Million guaranteed and $100,000 to first.

Whichever you end up choosing, it looks like this is going to a huge NFL season in terms of guarantees and prizepools, so stay tuned for more news on what’s to come and what tourneys you should be entering.

DraftKings and FanDuel NBA Overlay Report

Finding and exploiting overlay is one of the easiest ways for any DFS player – new or old – to improve their chances of cashing and grabbing and a big score. Overlay exists in Guaranteed Prize Pool tournaments only, when the number of buy-ins entered is not enough to cover the prize pool the site guaranteed. The overlay is the amount of their own money the site must kick-in to make up the difference. Anytime there’s overlay that means a higher percentage of the field will cash, there’s essentially free money up for grabs and it may become a lot easier to move up to higher ranking prizes – depending on how great the overlay is.
